Finally! This is my type of game.
Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, and others, have scared the poo out of millions for years, and now there finally getting a virtual playground to terrorize.
Universal is set to announce this week that it has struck a deal with SEE Virtual Worlds to create a massively multiplayer online game where players become their own version of monster-hunter Van Helsing. SEE, which stands for Special Entertainment Events, plans on building several virtual worlds – what it calls “planets” — based on entertainment properties. Last month, it announced its first, Planet Michael, devoted to deceased pop star Michael Jackson.
Planet Michael and the Universal Monsters project are due late next year.
Some of the characters making up the Universal Monsters collection include the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Phantom of the Opera, Dracula, the Invisible Man, the Mummy and the Creature From the Black Lagoon.
